On Fedora you can use festival. if it's not installed (as root):
Code:
yum install festival
You can then say something with, for example:
Code:
echo "This is a test" | festival --tts
If you want to save the speech in a file, then:
Code:
echo "This is a test" | text2wave -o test.wav

Thank you I know about festival. Doesn't work nearly as well as say. Say has a large number of voices most of which sound pretty good. Pronunciation is much more realistic and it's not monotone like festival is. I used festival before and was never satisfied with it and it hasn't really gotten any better since I used it 8 years ago. But thank you anyway.
